Can you imagine how it would feel tolive a life with no regrets? Or how about just half of the ones you might have now? How do we live a life being totally present, in joy and let go of negative self talk? When we live totally present in our all of our relationships, we gift ourselves with a life with little or no regrets.
P= Passionate: Living with passion in your purpose. When we do this life is brighter, more playful and even delightful, creating a force that pulls you along, kind of like the flow of a river.
R= Responsible: Being responsible in all areas of your life. Mistakes are like the head of a compass, pointing me where I need to correct my efforts. I keep in mind that other’s have their own GPS’s and I need not be responsible for another adult person.
E= Effort: Give your best effort to focus. I make every effort to Be Present in every situation. When I am with someone else and they are talking, I am not thinking of how I will respond to what they are saying. I listen to them with an open heart with nonjudgement. When I focus completely on the task at hand, I make less errors and life flows more easily.
S= Safe: Make safe choices for yourself and your loved ones. Being present means being aware of your surroundings and making safe choices in relationship to driving as well as social media, home safety, food, health and wellness.
E= Encouraging: Encourage those around us through setting an example; modeling the behavior we want. One of the best ways to be the “cheerleader” for others is by “being” that which we want. It takes advantage of the Law of Attraction, which works with our energy, our feelings, our “being”, not our wishing. It works a lot like gravity, whether we believe it or not.
N= Now: There is only now, stay in the presence of now. Don’t worry about the future and don’t regret the past. When we frequently revisit our past mistakes, we create shame, which attacks our soul. Shame is about who we are, not what we did. Guilt’s purpose is to gently show us our errors so that we can make course correction in our life’s journey. When we look into the future, it’s important to have visions, dream’s and goals. But in order to make them a reality, we have to take action right here, right now.
T= Thankful: Find gratitude in all things and express it openly, as it brings more things to be grateful for. Gratitude can be the armor against negativity, it’s almost impossible to feel grateful and anything negative at the same time.
And to tie this PRESENT up with a Bow is BELIEFS. Our self talk is really our subconscious telling us what we believe. Our subconscious mind is in control 95% of the time through habit. Our conscious mind, which is what we think we think is only in control 5% of the time. Wouldn’t it be great if our subconscious thoughts were in alignment with our goals and dreams? I work with women to switch their self talk that no longer serves them to language and thoughts that propel them to have more successful and richer lives.
